When I was a kid, I didn't often have cereal for breakfast, instead preferring a warm slice of bread day in and day out. I had toast so much that I once dreamed about giant toast people chasing me - a dream that only served my desire to eat even more of it.
To this day one of my favorite breakfasts (and snacks) is a hunk of freshly toasted, buttered bread. And now that I can make my own bread, well, it's practically the most perfect food in my book. The only thing I was missing was a good toaster, and now I've got that covered too.
As our previous toaster had just died, I was excited to try out the Magimix Vision Toaster. I had seen it around the Internet and in stores, and with my love of design I was immediately entranced by the clean lines and glass front. My son and husband were just as excited as I was when it arrived at our house, and the next day we eagerly set our first pieces of bread into the machine.
I find the most "difficult" part of toasting to be determining what setting to use, but the glass front helps eliminate that problem. It's also incredibly easy to clean - a must for any gadget in my house - with a slide out tray and side panels that fold out. Yep, no more shaking the toaster upside down over the trash to get out those errant crumbs!
Why am I telling you about this toaster? Because thanks to the folks at Magimix, Food Fanatic is giving one away to a lucky reader!
